Sri Lanka

Talk

Sinhala, spoken by the majority Sinhalese, and Tamil, spoken by the minority Tamil and Muslim groups, are Sri Lanka’s two official languages. English is commonly used in most cities, especially Colombo, Kandy and Galle, and by government and tourism officials. Don’t expect everyone, everywhere to be able to speak it fluently. In the beach and tourist areas you will have no problem with English. Most people in rural villages however cannot speak any English, beyond a few simple words.
